Join a highly descriptive virtual tour of Ansel Adams in our Time led by a museum docent who will discuss exhibition highlights with a presentation designed for people who have low vision or are blind. The tour will take place at 11 am. A tour designed for a general audience will take place one hour prior. All are welcome to both tours. There will be an opportunity to ask questions, and both programs will be captioned. 

About the exhibition

Looking forward and back, this exhibition of more than 100 works by photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams (1902 – 1984) places him in direct conversation with contemporary artists and the photographers who influenced him. Laid out in seven sections tracing Adams’s artistic development, Ansel Adams in Our Time features some of his most-loved photographs, including images of Yosemite, San Francisco, and the American Southwest. Adams’s works are shown alongside prints by 19th-century landscape photographers, such as Carleton Watkins and Eadweard Muybridge, as well contemporary artists like Trevor Paglen, Will Wilson, and Catherine Opie.
